Aubergine #1

Solanum melongena! 9 1/2" x 4 1/2" oil on masonite, $75.


New color, new challenges. I managed to get several eggplant portraits from this gem before it rotted. I like a tough vegetable that can pose for hours under the hot lights.

Lemon Large

20" x 18 3/4" oil on masonite, $300.

It's big, well for me, well for my fruits and veggies.  Dramatic?  It's fun and it makes me want to do more big paintings of small things.

Guest Soap

This painting was a the result of Ger saying to me "we need a painting hanging on that empty nail in the downstairs bathroom".

9" x 9" oil on masonite. Private collection!

I can't help but grin every time I look at it. I'm so happy with how it turned out. You might be seeing a lot more of the little dish in the future.


9" x 9" oil on masonite, $175.

Lemons are so much fun to paint. I think I could spend the next 20 years painting fruits and vegetables. I never get bored with them, they offer something new with each visit.

Misty Morning

Abstract painting 32" X 16 3/4" oil on board, $250.

I've been working and thinking and the two don't mix. This was three different things before I loosened up and calmed down.
